New Construction Homes are today’s way of buying. With interest rates continuing to rise, Buyers have found that they cannot afford the neighborhoods they want to buy in. Fortunately, there are many creative ways to buy in this market. With the right agent and lender, you can still buy a home.
A Good Builder
Some builders are desperately trying to sell their inventory homes and have partnered with lenders to help lock in rates in the 4s for government loans. Some of these same builders are giving up to 2% of the sales price towards closing costs. Unsold new homes that are complete or almost complete are called “spec” homes. There are many floor plans already under construction and waiting on you.
A Good Realtor
If you are thinking of new construction, a knowledgeable Realtor who can help negotiate price, options, rates and seller contribution is key to your success. A Realtor can also help negotiate price, terms and closing costs on a pre-owned home. On certain homes, builders have even offered a pool with purchase!
A Good Lender
Some lenders are offering a rate buy down on their already low preferred lender government loan rate making some interest rates between 3% and 4% for the first year. When ready, I can connect you with the right lender.
